Lady Audley’s Secret

Lady Audley’s Secret: I often seek out film versions of books I’ve read, so when I discovered this TV movie was available on Netflix I immediately added it to our queue. First off, I’d like to say that this movie was gorgeous. The sets, props, and costumes were simply breathtaking. Unfortunately, it looks like the budget all went towards the visuals instead of hiring a good screenwriter and decent director. The acting is wooden, the dialogue silly, the blocking stilted. The changes from the book were unnecessary and didn’t add anything to the story whatsoever. In fact, I’m not entirely sure I would have been able to follow much of what was going on had I not read the book first. In short, don’t bother with this film. If you’d like a good costume drama, try Shakespeare in Love.
